    I'd grab the new RAZR, if I were you.
    The touchscreen on the front 'n' such are nice.
    I've played with my friend's RAZR v3 and they're way sturdier and less cheap-feeling than the previous RAZR's.

    Too bad you can't get an iPhone. [​IMG]

    Best do some reviews first.. The razr v3 is meant to have some problems and if you can afford a more expensive phone, go for it.. It really depends if you like slide, flip or classic.. If your going to use it for photos, music, games or just calling and organizing..

    So what do you want in a phone and what do you want to use it for, besides calling.. Any extra feautures you want??

    Just trying to narrow it down for you.. [​IMG]

    I'm not a fan of Motorola or their razr phones, so that's off the list.

    I mainly want the phone for playing music while i'm at work, texting and the occasional talking on it.

    Possibly the Sony Ericsson w910i.. As you can read by the details it is basically an mp3 player.. Got lots of interesting features and it doesnt seem to expensive

    The only issue I had with an Ericsson was that to put anything on it, I had to buy Sony's proprietary M2 memory card. Which kind of sucked considering the mini-collection of Micro SD cards I've acquired for some reason. [​IMG]

    Other than that Ericssons make for fine phones, but I'd prefer a Nokia.
